2020 KTM 250 XC vs 2020 Yamaha YZ250X - Would you Rather??? Ep. 63

I get this question a lot in my email.  So many guys love the YZ250X since it’s a great platform, great motor, great forks, and it’s a cheaper bike than some of the others. 

Lets get another thing out of the way, I didn’t like the YZ250X,  I LOVED my 2017 YZ250X… go back and watch the review I did on it.  GLOWING remarks at the time.  

We'll set aside the fact that the Yamaha YZ250X is literally a 2004- 2006 YZ250 (16-18 years old) with an 18" rear wheel, lower compression motor, a little extra flywheel weight, Kickstand, and a weird spaced 5 speed gear box that doesn’t really work that great anywhere.  


$7600 vs $10,000 - $2400 cheaper on the Yami, but it’s 18 model years older! 

I’ll take the KTM 250XC any day of the week and twice on Saturday! This podcast will help you understand why that is.
